All of these kittens are reserved.
I do not keep a waiting list for kittens; I will not email you back when the kittens are born. I ask that you check this page for birth announcements and available kittens, emailing me at Dracoonfly@comcast.net if you are interested after a new litter's arrival is posted. Please include an appropriate subject heading in your email such as "Kitten Inquiry" so your email doesn't end up in the Spam Folder and tell me a little bit about your household.
Since the demand for Maine Coon kittens is tremendous, I am now posting on my website first and Facebook second. Due dates of upcoming litters will continue to be posted here on the website so prospective kitten buyers have an idea of when to check the website or email me.
As placing our kittens into the right home is very important, all prospective kitten buyers are expected to complete an application prior to approval. Submitting an application does not put you on a waiting list or guarantee that I will have a kitten available for you. You will need to contact me when the expected delivery date nears to let me know you are still interested. Other breeders I work with and previous kitten buyers have priority. Dracoonfly kittens do not leave for their new homes until they are at least 12 weeks of age, been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, dewormed and have had two sets of their kitten vaccinations.
Kitten buyers who already have a kitten reserved with a deposit and signed contract will be welcomed into our home once their kitten is 7-8 weeks of age and has had their first vaccinations. At that time, you will not only meet your kitten and its littermates, but you'll also see where it has been raised and meet its parents (assuming the baby-daddy lives here; sometimes I use an outside stud to keep diversity in my lines). This is one of the advantages of getting your kitten from a breeder; seeing where it came from and how it has spent the first three months of its life.
Parents of all kittens have had their hearts screened by a Board Certified Cardiologist using ultrasound and are presently clear of HCM. Copies of the heart screenings are provided to kitten buyers. Links to the DNA testing results for all breeding cats are on the Males or Females pages of this site.

Terminology definitions for kitten availability:
"Reserved" - A deposit and signed contract have been received for a kitten. It is NOT available.
"Tentatively Reserved" - Verbal promise. Awaiting receipt of signed contract and deposit.
"Under Observation for Show/breeder"- I am waiting to see how this kitten develops to determine whether or not he/she will be kept or sold to another breeder. If not, then the kitten may become available to a pet home. Please note that I only work with established reputable breeders I know.
I strongly suggest that you read these blogs for kitten buyers:
